Coldplay's Chris Martin Confirms Band Has New Album in the Works
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has revealed that he has been working with Rihanna on new music, NME reports.

Rihanna first worked with Coldplay in 2011 on the "Mylo Xyloto" single "Princess of China." Speaking in a new interview with US radio station Fresh 102.7 Martin confirmed that he and his band are already working on the follow up to their new album "Ghost Stories" and that he hopes to get the Bajan pop star involved.

"We knew we wanted to make this thing called Ghost Stories, and then make something else. Worst answer of all time ... but we have an idea, then we're gonna go on tour after that," said Martin regarding a new Coldplay album.

On the subject of Rihanna he continued: "I love being in the studio with Rihanna. It wasn't necessarily with ... I was working for her. I don't think she even asked, I just said, 'Please can I try something?'"

Asked specifically if Rihanna will be on the next Coldplay album, Martin replied: "I hope so, yeah. I have a really nice song which ... maybe, I hope so."

Martin's admission that Coldplay are planning to tour is also news to fans. When the band played the first of two nights at London's Royal Albert Hall in June, Martin said the gigs would be one of their "last shows for a while."
